If convicted, he faces a possibility of life in prison.

TAMPA – The U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Florida announced the arrest of a Tampa man accused of selling illegal drugs that killed another.

Isaiah Reed, 30, of Tampa, was charged with conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of heroin and fentanyl. If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of life imprisonment.

According to the criminal complaint, on Sept. 19, Reed sold a victim a controlled substance that contained fentanyl. The victim injected the substance, became unresponsive, and died. The Hillsborough County Medical Examiner’s Office determined that the victim suffered an accidental death caused by the combined effects of fentanyl, methamphetamine, and heroin.

A criminal complaint is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed one or more violations of federal criminal law, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless, and until, proven guilty.
